The Polish producer has been pushing his fresh take on deep tech house since 2009. Early appearances on Asymmetric Recordings and Vice Versa Music brought Jacob’s sound to the masses which ultimately led to original and remix productions on Sound Avenue’s Crossfade Sounds imprint both in the last calendar year. Jacob’s debut EP for Symmetric is entitled ‘Jupiter’ and it comes with three brand new original productions.

The title track leads the EP off and stylistically it sees Jacob focusing on a more progressive flavoured production. It’s bouncy foundation, drummy builds and rolling melodies create a nice energy early on. The full melodic theme is then realized during the main break and it reminds me a bit of Paul Van Dyk’s older material. Emotional chord changes along with textural waves of harmony make for an epic moment which gets further explored during a tasteful second half conclusion.

The second selection ‘Spaceship’ features a wickedly shaped foundation along with very catchy rhythmic hooks. It’s driving energy picks things up a notch and the hypnotic qualities make it perfect for radio or club play. The sequence of low end stabs and trailing harmonies which feature heavily in the second half make for another great climax which carries a nice subtle emotion about it.

The EPs third and final selection ‘Voices From The Past’ closes the release out on a fun, quirky note. The tracks driving, techy framework and grinding groove are once again full of great dance floor energy and the vocal gates add a lovely old school touch. Ultimately though it’s the brain teasing synth lead that flows through a myriad of modulation which really hits the spot. A lot of great hooks here and it closes out a very strong EP on a high note. Great release from Symmetric.
